I am ready to change that registration. Enough.

Excuse me, but I was illustrating how the WOD is neither constitutional, nor lawful, nor just...

I KNOW. And I was illustrating how your priorities s*ck!

As for Israel, consider this: we have no money. We shouldn't be giving foreign aid to ANYONE, we simply don't have money.

As for Israel, consider this: God said we are to bless Israel!! What you and RP say means squat next to what God says! Got it? When we were blessed are credit rating wasn't lowered, now it is. You got some charts to figure out why from those fancy number crunchers and those with degrees up the wazoo vs God's Word to tell us why?

You rant and rave about the law of the land when you can't obey God's law which our law was based on!

Blessings come from God, not from RP and his ilk!

There are more I could list,but as you can see the WOD degrades more than half of the Bill of Rights. How than can any conservative countenance continuation of such policy?

Conservative? Point the finger where it belongs - those who look to men for answers and disregard God and what HE says. The fruit of doing that isn't pretty, is it? Keep your pen handy, there will be alot more you can add as God will not be mocked!

The RP crew say 'God we can't bless Israel for we have no money'. The RP crew focus is on money and not on God.

"No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money."

"I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you."

And the RP crowd are pointing their finger at conservatives? LOL!! Get real - LOOK IN THE MIRROR! Seems you are right up front with the enemy within! Not surprised RP stayed in the race to mock Newt and take votes away from a conservative to ensure a Romney victory in the primary. And now they scream about 'rights' and NO ONE is listening. You got nothing for causing trouble. Now go bow to your god, money - right along with your president - he wants all you got!

Meanwhile Israel WILL survive without us! How's that for a kick in the head. An opportunity for America to be blessed and RP and his ilk wanted no part of it!! 'Rights' LOL!!! Did you make a statue to your ungodly leader RP, yet? Do it while you still have that 'right' IF you have the money left for it. Israel doesn't need your change.

Nope, God said that He will bless those who bless Israel, and curse those who curse it, as part of the Abrahamic covenant; there isn't a command there to bless them. -- and there are other way besides just money that you certainly aren't considering.
Furthermore, how is it blessing them if to continue foreign aid to them will add to the burden that is and will enslave the American people for generations? Is it justice to take away someone's wealth and give it to another, or did God say (Ex 20:15) Thou shall not steal?

What you and RP say means squat next to what God says! Got it?

Funny, I've given more scriptural basis for my arguments against continuing foreign aid, any foreign aid, than you have in asserting we need to give to Israel.

When we were blessed are credit rating wasn't lowered, now it is. You got some charts to figure out why from those fancy number crunchers and those with degrees up the wazoo vs God's Word to tell us why?

So? That's been a long time coming; it should have been lowered decades ago, and continued being lowered. According to the S&P Website's Definitions, we should be rated no higher than CCC, and that's being generous, we likely deserve a C or D.

Further, God's word is full of teachings on handling money; our current government could not care less what the Bible says about paying debts, or about responsibilities to paying what is owed.

You rant and rave about the law of the land when you can't obey God's law which our law was based on!

Hm, that's funny. I don't hold the Mosiac Law as nothing, but I am not under it: Jesus has fulfilled my debts to it.
Further, since the very early church the Gentile believers were not constrained to follow the Mosiac Law; the story unfolds in Acts 15:

Some people came down from Judea teaching the family of believers, “Unless you are circumcised according to the custom we’ve received from Moses, you can’t be saved.” Paul and Barnabas took sides against these Judeans and argued strongly against their position.

The church at Antioch appointed Paul, Barnabas, and several others from Antioch to go up to Jerusalem to set this question before the apostles and the elders. The church sent this delegation on their way. They traveled through Phoenicia and Samaria, telling stories about the conversion of the Gentiles to everyone. Their reports thrilled the brothers and sisters. When they arrived in Jerusalem, the church, the apostles, and the elders all welcomed them. They gave a full report of what God had accomplished through their activity. Some believers from among the Pharisees stood up and claimed, “The Gentiles must be circumcised. They must be required to keep the Law from Moses.”

The apostles and the elders gathered to consider this matter. After much debate, Peter stood and addressed them, “Fellow believers, you know that, early on, God chose me from among you as the one through whom the Gentiles would hear the word of the gospel and come to believe. God, who knows people’s deepest thoughts and desires, confirmed this by giving them the Holy Spirit, just as he did to us. He made no distinction between us and them, but purified their deepest thoughts and desires through faith. Why then are you now challenging God by placing a burden on the shoulders of these disciples that neither we nor our ancestors could bear? On the contrary, we believe that we and they are saved in the same way, by the grace of the Lord Jesus.”

The entire assembly fell quiet as they listened to Barnabas and Paul describe all the signs and wonders God did among the Gentiles through their activity. When Barnabas and Paul also fell silent, James responded, “Fellow believers, listen to me. Simon reported how, in his kindness, God came to the Gentiles in the first place, to raise up from them a people of God. The prophets’ words agree with this; as it is written,

  After this I will return,
        and I will rebuild David’s fallen tent;
        I will rebuild what has been torn down.
          I will restore it
              so that the rest of humanity will seek the Lord,
                even all the Gentiles who belong to me.
  The Lord says this, the one who does these things
    known from earliest times.

“Therefore, I conclude that we shouldn’t create problems for Gentiles who turn to God. Instead, we should write a letter, telling them to avoid the pollution associated with idols, sexual immorality, eating meat from strangled animals, and consuming blood. After all, Moses has been proclaimed in every city for a long time, and is read aloud every Sabbath in every synagogue.”

The apostles and the elders, along with the entire church, agreed to send some delegates chosen from among themselves to Antioch, together with Paul and Barnabas. They selected Judas Barsabbas and Silas, who were leaders among the brothers and sisters. They were to carry this letter:
The apostles and the elders, to the Gentile brothers and sisters in Antioch, Syria, and Cilicia. Greetings! We’ve heard that some of our number have disturbed you with unsettling words we didn’t authorize. We reached a united decision to select some delegates and send them to you along with our dear friends Barnabas and Paul. These people have devoted their lives to the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, we are sending Judas and Silas. They will confirm what we have written. The Holy Spirit has led us to the decision that no burden should be placed on you other than these essentials: refuse food offered to idols, blood, the meat from strangled animals, and sexual immorality. You will do well to avoid such things. Farewell.
When Barnabas, Paul, and the delegates were sent on their way, they went down to Antioch. They gathered the believers and delivered the letter. The people read it, delighted with its encouraging message.

So, given that you say "you rant and rave about the law of the land when you can't obey God's law which our law was based on!" why shouldn't Peter's question be asked in return:
   Why then are you now challenging God by placing a burden on the shoulders of these disciples that neither we nor our ancestors could bear?
And indeed, it is because I cannot obey the Law of God that I once needed a savior, presently need a savior, and will need a savior in the future... and it is God's mercy and grace that provided one for me: Jesus, the perfect priest and mediator.

PS - Yes I am against unjust and immoral laws, they go against God's requirements of man -- see my tagline and Micah 6:8.

Meanwhile Israel WILL survive without us! How's that for a kick in the head.

It isn't; Israel is mentioned in Revelation and the end-times.

An opportunity for America to be blessed and RP and his ilk wanted no part of it!!

Questions: Why should God bless a country that kills its unborn Citizens? Why should God bless a country that refuses to act fiscally responsible? Why should God bless a country which imposes all forms of injustice calling it justice, and evil calling it good?

Also, could it be that giving money to Israel could be cursing them? -- Consider how many people, upon winning the lottery, become worse off than before. Money /= Blessing.

'Rights' LOL!!! Did you make a statue to your ungodly leader RP, yet? Do it while you still have that 'right' IF you have the money left for it. Israel doesn't need your change.

Wow, and here I thought that many rights came from God: life, liberty, private property.

Thank you so much for setting me straight that my rights come from Ron Paul! Thank you so much for telling me that he is my leader, I never realized that! Thank you so much for telling me that my observation of the "Ron Paul crowd" having the drive to win the election is equivalent to the desire to make statues of Ron Paul!
How could I have ever been so blind as to think that any agreement or admiration to any person is idolatry. (Guess we really didn't need Hebrews 11.)
[/sarc]

And the RP crowd are pointing their finger at conservatives? LOL!! Get real - LOOK IN THE MIRROR! Seems you are right up front with the enemy within! Not surprised RP stayed in the race to mock Newt and take votes away from a conservative to ensure a Romney victory in the primary. And now they scream about 'rights' and NO ONE is listening. You got nothing for causing trouble. Now go bow to your god, money - right along with your president - he wants all you got!

Ah, yes; I'm a traitor the enemy within. The tampering of primaries and attack ads on Romney's behalf played no part in getting Romny as the nominee... no sir, it was all that Ron Paul and his dirty hippy followers! [/sarc]

Why would you think money is my god anyway? You're coming off, well... off.

God said that He will bless those who bless Israel, and curse those who curse it, as part of the Abrahamic covenant; there isn't a command there to bless them. --

WHAT!! You don't take God seriously? You have to be COMMANDED to obey? We obey simply because He said it and HE is giving us knowledge. Those who KNOW God obey - not those who put God on the back burner! When God says He will curse those who don't - you snub your nose! After all, 'your rights' will protect you!

and there are other way besides just money that you certainly aren't considering.

That I'm not considering? MORE LIES! YOU ARE THE ONE WHO BROUGHT UP MONEY!! STAY FOCUSED! I kept with what I was responding to. YOU are unable to do that as you twist and squirm.

but I am not under it: Jesus has fulfilled my debts to it.

Seems you believe only what you want to believe. Jesus covered my sins debt, how cool!! But I don't listen to when HE says 'HEAR and OBEY' - after all, there is NO COMMAND there! You appear to be apart of the freebie crowd with your.."I'll take the 'gift' of salvation but don't expect me to honor His Word to be a blessing to Israel". And then support a candidate who was used by the enemy to promise 'all the rights to be restored' but forget supporting Israel - the enemy used what he knew would entice you enough to bring a curse on America and go against God's Word.

You really need to get to know the snares of satan - because ungodly RP doesn't! Satan even tempted Jesus with the promise of giving it all to Jesus if He would bow to him. I guess it wasn't a command for you to read it - so you didn't give a flip to LEARN the snares of satan. If he did it to Jesus you would know he would do it to you and HE DID!

Are you COMMANDED to love God and have fellowship with HIM? This is not a command but knowledge on what God will do...

"Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'

RP and his ilk were apart of it all - there is NO denying that! You were apart of what satan used as his weapon against Israel with a crowd he knew he could entice with 'their rights' mindset!

Why would you think money is my god anyway? You're coming off, well... off.

Because YOU in YOUR OWN WORDS put money before Israel! Are you now denying that, also? You are coming off, unreliable, some one who can't stand behind their word, squirming when the truth is presented. You PROVED you are the one....off.

Me and my house will serve The Lord and we don't have to be COMMANDED to do so, we want to!

You NEEDED to take it off RP and Israel didn't you - His/your mess was TOO HOT for you to handle. Why did satan use RP as going against ISRAEL and use 'rights' to entice his followers and, thus, allowing RP to stay in the race?

BECAUSE they are ignorant to GOD'S WORD and His Ways just like those who kill the unborn, not good stewards of God's money (He owns it all.) and calling evil good. Face it, You/RP and his groupies are part of the whole mess - so don't point fingers!! You think 'your part' is no big deal next to the others. You are SO WRONG! Disobedience is disobedience, bowing to the enemy is bowing to the enemy. You can't squirm away from it - your own it! Admit it or remain unteachable.

It isn't; Israel is mentioned in Revelation and the end-times.

What wrong with you? Didn't I say Israel WILL survive! And you posted my own words to respond to it. The kick in the head is - IN SPITE of RP and all the trouble he caused in this election with the SUPPORT of his groupies - Israel SURVIVES. Don't ever mock God for your own gain.

RP is one clueless dude who is hell bent to learn the hard way and his followers with the same mindset are, also! Enemies to America, enticed by satan to give them something satan can't give but, nonetheless - satan used it as a wrap to cover his 'desire of support' to go against Israel and like terrorist they obeyed!

This election clearly showed those who truly has a heart for God or themselves/their rights.

"But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive....." 2 Tim 3

More Knowledge but not a command, so you may not be interested. But who does that describe? The other guy the RP crowd is hell bent on pointing to?

OBEDIENCE is better than sacrifice. "But Samuel replied: "Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the LORD? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams".

God's Word is to be OBEYED - Don't use God's Word as a tool for your own agenda!! Don't mock HIM - that IS A COMMAND since you ONLY are interested in commands and NOT KNOWLEDGE of The Word!

Well, look what we have here. To do justly - as long as 'your rights' are included, otherwise all bets are off. To love mercy - for yourself only (lovers of self) and not Israel. To walk humbly - as long as no one notices, you can 'try' it. But you proved any thing but! To be humble before God, you obey HIM with a STRONG desire to learn from HIM so you can obey and do it joyfully, and not commanded.

You were apart of what satan used as his weapon against Israel with a crowd he knew he could entice with 'their rights' mindset!

Technically correct, as "apart" means the opposite of "a part"... though you certainly mean the latter and therefore are incorrect.

Because YOU in YOUR OWN WORDS put money before Israel!

No, I'm saying we have no money... not that political or military support is unwarranted.
Your calling that assertion of the current impossibility of responsible monetary handling to yield ANY foreign aid as "placing money before" is ridiculous. That's like berating the poor [literally destitute] for not giving to the church; we as-a-nation are in that position, we have enough fiat-money at this moment to keep appearances of being rich, but it's all a facade.

Unless and until we have responsible finances there should be no foreign aid. In fact, there should be drastic reductions in government spending, to include wholesale dissolution of entire government agencies: the ATF, the FDA, the Dept of Agriculture, the DOE, the other DOE, the DEA... anything not specifically mandated by the Constitution to include NASA and the Air Force.

Are you now denying that, also? You are coming off, unreliable, some one who can't stand behind their word, squirming when the truth is presented. You PROVED you are the one....off.

Hey, I already said there are other ways besides money to "bless Israel", one thing you haven't even so much as hinted at would be missionaries.
Yes, my main interest is with this nation and I believe that Israel doesn't need jack-shit from the US. I further think that people who claim that giving money to Israel just because of the Abrahamic covenant is stupid, trying to make God into some sort of robot: "I gave money to Israel so now you have to bless me!"
What a petulant and immature worldview.

Me and my house will serve The Lord and we don't have to be COMMANDED to do so, we want to!

Right. Then why did you resort to trying to brow-beat me, a fellow-believer, with the Mosaic Law?
Your boasting sounds a lot like the religious elite that Jesus rebuked.

Wow - That's a lot of bile.
You have no idea who I am, or what I think, other than a few paragraphs posted on an online political forum -- paragraphs you are reading a LOT into.
Granted, many online-arguments are charged with such assumptions and ascribing what is unsaid to the other person; I am far from immune.

But your attack of me here is, frankly, unwarranted.

Um, have you ever listened to Ron Paul? Please, listen to his farewall speech and then tell me if it is proud, boastful or abusive.
Indeed, I invite you to tell me what you personally disagree with politically in it.

No, that wasn't ever the point: my [original] point was that Ron Paul's supporters were the one identifiable demographic in Republican that displayed a real will/drive to win.

Why did satan use RP as going against ISRAEL and use 'rights' to entice his followers and, thus, allowing RP to stay in the race?

Satan can't do such w/o God's allowing it; see Job... now I ask: why would God allow it?
